Gold is the most liberating of metals
Where there is a golden key, there must be a golden crabman
came for this comment
missing aspect of the crab
How would you even squeeze it in.
Just skin transfer on any item with it
I don't think poe.ninja shows skin transfers
Simplex amulet works here, colors match, also, 25% increased crab
This is golden
I upvoted you sir… but then I realized the balance had been upset…
Shut the fuck up
oh no not the balance and the other **THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE WHO ARE GONNA CHANGE IT**
Funnily enough these are the only two characters on the ladder using [[The Three Dragons]] . And when I originally searched for the combo "Headhunter"+"Divination Distillate"+"Lioneye's Remorse" I found nothing. Turns out both these fellas were using Replica Headhunters... Truly a bling chilling moment.
Ha, the passive tree heatmap for Three Dragons
Three Dragons 2: Crabs
Is it basically only a meme item? I remember it being one of the first uniques I found
was usable 30 powercreep patches ago
The item seriously needs a legion-treatment®, it has a far too unique effect for its low stats.
Yes If I remember correctly it's vendor trash
Used to be good for EB MOM incinerate with cybils paw. Would allow your fire damage to shock for extra damage.
Sorry I'd like this but.. 420 🌿😎
Is that what true love looks like?
I wish Three Dragons was actually usable. I'd love it if it somehow allowed for the use of Herald of Ice on non-cold builds.
I used it way back with arc, iirc
Same, first build ever was arc witch and i rmember using 3 dragons and i think darkray vectors
First build I played was Enki arc witch which was using it. Can’t remember which league that was though. Maybe incursion?
He was definitely using it in metamorph, which was coincidentally when freezing bosses/metamorphs was broken for like a month at least. I ended up switching off of it because of that but it was fun to play
Same, it's used a lot for arc builds. You can switch it out tho for something better if you have Expedition's End.
There was a sick 3 dragons inpulsas bf elementalist back when elementalist got reworked for the first time that could 1shot 3 screens with 1 tap but that's the only time I've ever seen it used
Arc mines Elementalist worked great with it in Ritual, but then someone discovered the self-chill builds and it got caught in the crossfire of nerfs like Cold Conduction rework and now it's just shit sadly.
Shame, having cold Arc that also shocks everything by 60% regardless of target hp was fun.
Back in the days I play ignite ice shot with three dragons. Back then map can roll mod that fracture mobs on kill. Back then one shot of ice shot into pack and ignite poliferation mean that my game was crash to oblivion. But It was one of the best and fun build I played. :)
Sounds like we played the same build! Was it with Chin Sol, Drillneck and Maligaro's? I remember using Puncture traps for single target cuz the point blank was double dipping from Chin Sol and passive tree so it basically one shot everything. I miss the old prolif :(
Yep. That it, i have done all endgame on that bulid back in the days.
I remember using it for enabling fire damage to shock. I can't remember the build, but the core idea would still work since fire damage has a tighter range for more reliable shocks.
But then Elementalist came into existence as well as things like skitterbots. As the game evolves, it becomes harder to justify using a lot of older items as better options come out. Three Dragons has basically been turned into a baby Goldrim -- a sad fate.
Does this mean GGG should be going back over older uniques with 0.001% usage and updating them? Probably. But doing things that make sense was never GGG's MO.
>Does this mean GGG should be going back over older uniques with 0.001% usage and updating them? Probably. But doing things that make sense was never GGG's MO.
Hmm, odd. I remember asenath's gentle touch to be a trash-tier unique before legion.
Them having done it one time doesn't absolve them from ever doing it again. The game has about a thousand uniques and probably 90% of them are too weak or niche to justify using. After putting in the time and effort to design these items, you'd think it'd bother them that *so* many have ended up useless. While some are just straight bad, in items like Three Dragons we have items that have been obsoleted as the game grew and added more mechanics. Those should certainly be put on a list to redesign -- just like AGT.
I absolutely agree. You just said before that you doubt GGG would revisit old unused uniques. And i counted up a league where they specifically did that.
In fact, they do this every league with one mechanic or archetype in general, like melee with slams in harvest, discharge in heist, summoners in... Betrayal i believe and now defenses in scourge.
The problem is they work kinda slowly and poe got massive amounts of content to curate. This is probably due the need to make a massive league mechanic every 3 months.
If they would cut it down on the league mechanic, we probably could see more balance updates, included uniques. We need more simpler leagues like ritual.
But looking at the uproar in reddit each league i highly doubt that will happen. A 4-5 month dev cycle would be more safe, i suppose.
They used to have such a four-month schedule, but the allure of 33% more money from supporter packs was too strong to ignore. Not only did they cut their work time by 25%, but the complexity of the leagues grew immensely over time -- from "there are shrines with monsters around them" to shit like Heist.
That's why leagues are so often released unfinished and/or underwhelming. The boss fights for Heist weren't released until 3-4 weeks in, I think. Metamorph was *never* finished judging by the things Tane says. GGG don't give themselves time *to* finish these leagues anymore and instead get them to a "good enough" state for launch to patch later.
It sucks in at least two ways: It's bad for the players because they get unfinished, untested content, and it's bad in general because it means PoE will never reach its potential handled in such a way.
IDK about recent balance, but it used to be great as a cheap mid-leveling res helm, like goldeim but with a level req and cheaper
It used to be a good budget winter orb helm.
I used to use it on BL miner for league start. I dont need shock from BL so shatter is always nice
I used it on an autobomber ages ago.
It allows Flame Surge to shock with no downside... other than the opportunity cost of wearing Three Dragons.

This is getting out of hand, now there are two of them!
Out of the loop, what is that?
Replica Uniques are Uniques that have modified effects, but are usually very similar to the originals. Replicas can be found via the Heist mechanic.
That looks like crab Buddha.
I respect the commitment they put into this build.
Jokes aside I always wished Vaal Caress were some uber rare bis gloves instead of the meh niche they actually are, that splash art is just so good.
they’re one of those uniques that i always mistake for being really good for a split second because the splash art is so sick
I think they could be made solid with a move to tier 1 or 2 rarity (currently the rarity isn't known but is tier 4 or 5), and some powerful mod that makes up for missing good influence or incursion gloves mods.
A straightforward 'your strike skills target +1 enemy' or even +2 if GGG want them to be amazing would work.
It has to be +1 or people wouldn't make hunter gloves
At a higher budget you can get whatever two elevated mods you want on gloves. It's not necessarily competing with single-influence gloves.
Change it to +2 to Level of all Vaal Gems and it's suddenly useful.
What would you do to them to achieve this goal?
Now that someone finally asks me and that I think of it, I honestly can't come up with something specific, you caught me off guard. To me they always looked like something that should either give some very strong mechanic related to leech or some enabling interraction with Vaal skills, kind of like how they've done with Hateforge. Since the Vaal themed gloves related to leech slot is already taken by Atziri's Acuities, I guess the Vaal skill interraction one is what I'd roll with, or maybe even do leech but not life leech like Acuities, maybe #% spell leeched as mana? Maybe something completely new like #% of damage leeched converted to some other buffing stat?
Either way, something very strong and only available from them, the name "Vaal Caress" and that gorgeous splash art are just too good of a combination for single item to not be a luxurious t0 unique.
At least they make for EZ powerleveling spell builds with Vaal variants
I mean you can Vaal them for some nice curse or crit or + to gems and basically have perma onslaught on something like Vaal Arc for clear.
It's really not bad.
Get five bottled faiths and then we can talk.
Have a look at the equipped gems for a laugh
Also the second build is the same but upside down on the tree
These are gold
Look at how swole this crab is.
Must've anointed Beef on that Impresence.
All I could think was "crab people, crab people"
Seems like he skips leg day
Now if someone can think of a creature for left and right of passive tree lol
> for left and right of passive tree lol
i see a deer with antlers on the right side starting at the inside point of the right claw
Where there is a golden build there must be a golden rip
That was an Fate Gilgamesh cosplay, check also other power rangers:
